The LA Lakers are in a hurry.
The Lakers, who switched from ‘give up’ to ‘competition’ mode while posting a decent record of 9 wins and 5 losses in the last 14 games, have been actively reinforcing players in preparation for the playoffs.
The problem the Lakers urgently need to solve is the low field goal success rate. The Lakers have gotten a little better in their 3-point shooting percentage over the past 14 games (34.2 percent), but they’re still only 20th in the league.
As a result, it is known that he has been all-in on the signing of Bojan Bognanovic from the Detroit Pistons.
According to American media outlets, the Lakers pursued a trade for Bogdanovic over the summer and are still discussing it with Detroit.
According to Mark Stein, the Lakers recently offered Detroit a trade package centered around a future first-round pick with added draft protection. 안전놀이터 But Detroit has so far turned down those offers. Reportedly requested future draft picks that were not fully protected.
In fact, Detroit has no reason to trade Bogdanovic, who is recording an average of 21.0 points and a field goal success rate of 50.8% (43.7% 3-point shooting). However, it is hopeless to advance into the play-in, so if the card is right, Bogdanovic can be given away.
The Lakers are known to have been considering sending Patrick Beverly and Kendrick Nunn to Detroit for Bogdanovich.
The Lakers absolutely need a helper like Bogdanovic to win around LeBron James and Anthony Davis.
Meanwhile, the Lakers continue to push for a trade that would allow them to trade Russell Westbrook, but are struggling with no team wanting him.
The Lakers are also reportedly pursuing the signing of New York Knicks’ Cam Reddish.
Attention is focusing on whether the Lakers will be able to embrace Bogdanovic.
